This text is the definitive reference for students and professionals seeking current best practices in treating children with CAS.The book is divided into three parts. Part I defines CAS, describes those characteristics most commonly associated with CAS, and offers guidelines for conducting a thorough motor speech evaluation to support an accurate differential diagnosis. Part II summarizes the principles of motor learning and provides clear guidance for how these principles can be put into practice when working with children with CAS. Part III addresses specific topics of interest to clinicians and students looking for practical ideas on how to address the multifaceted challenges of children with CAS such as vowels, prosody, expressive language, social language, and incorporating phonological awareness in CAS treatment.Additional recommendations are provided for supporting the needs of children with limited verbal output and older children with ongoing communicative challenges, working with parents, developing treatment plans, and writing meaningful goals and objectives.
